LA Confidential Magazine is touting Pasadena as the trendy place to find great eats if you live in the LA area. What can we say? We don’t disagree. (You can read their entire article here.) But not only is Pasadena a great place to find a meal you won’t forget, it’s also a wonderful place to explore for its distinctive charm.
Looking to get out of LA and try something new? Old Town Pasadena is charming, low key, and just a short drive away. Make this delightful city your next date night destination. Take a drive along the Colorado Bridge, spend the day at the Huntington Gardens, stroll through Old Town and stop in at Union (with a reservation @ www.opentable.com) to have one of the best meals of your life.
